In this program, the Liederfieber duo, consisting of the soprano Ulrike Romberg and the pianist Felix Kruse, presents songs by composers such as Brahms, Schumann, Wolf and others, including Felix Kruse's own compositions.
Johannes Brahms sets a poem by Mörike to music in a passionate allegro, while Hugo Wolf sings the same poem in a slow lament. Zelter composed Goethe's "Suleika" as a strophic song, while his student Mendelssohn implemented it in contrasting ways.
These differences are not only due to historical aspects, but also to the personal styles of the composers and their different interpretations of the texts. It is fascinating to compare the different results in order to gain a deeper understanding of the texts.
Immerse yourself in the world of setting poems to music at a very exciting and varied song evening!
